Wow! What a lesson plan! Six terrific activities are described in great detail, in this 31-page document! Learners will model and explain cloud formation, sketch and identify certain cloud types, calculate and compare incoming and outgoing radiation, and make climate predictions based on increases or decreases in certain cloud types. I can't say enough good things about this lesson. If you are a 5th - 8th grade science teacher, check this one out for sure!
Why were laws created? Spark a group discussion on why we need laws to co-exist. Should the sale of some things be outlawed on Sundays? Read a case summary between Target and the state of Minnesota that debated this issue. Ask your learners to discuss how laws evolve over time. Why are changes necessary? Are they fair? Wrap up the instructional activity by presenting them with a list of bizarre Sunday laws. For example, "On Sunday in Cicero, Illinois, it is illegal to be humming on the streets."
Any preschool teacher would be thrilled to have a resource like this one. It includes activity ideas, discussion leads, book suggestions, and a glossary for learners ages 2 - 5. The entire booklet focuses on ways to teach young children about the five themes of geography in a fun and developmentally appropriate way. The resource is a little old, but the ideas and activities are great. There is enough here for an entire week of activities.
The tectonic processes that have resulted in the formation of the Marianas Arc, and the Marianas Trench are explored. Groups of pupils access websites that give them a wealth of information about these formations. Each group must prepare a three-dimensional relief map of the Marianas Arc, or a model of a volcano found in the Marianas Islands. This impressive plan should lead to a much greater understanding of the earth's tectonic processes.
The best part about teaching guides is all the great information you can use to inform your class. They infer what type of boundary exists between two tectonic plates. Then, using given information on earthquakes and volcanism they'll determine if their guesses are correct.
Introduce your nascent journalists to editorials and editorial writing. The many types of editorials are defined and modeled. The steps in the process for writing an editorial are explained from the planning, to the drafting, to creating various types of editorial leads, through the structure of the body and the conclusion. This PowerPoint has it all.
Was the atomic bombing of Japan ethical? After crafting a personal journal response to the question, class members are assigned a position and provided with primary source documents that prepare them to engage in a "Structured Academic Controversy." At the conclusion of the debate, individuals revisit their initial stance, and using evidence from the source material, craft a formal position paper on the question.
Pupils participate in a wide variety of activities designed to help them make wise decisions regarding drug usage. They differentiate regulated drugs from prohibited drugs and identify agencies responsible for upholding laws. Additionally, they explore the penalties for drug violations.
Using primary source documents, young historians explore the strategies the US used to defeat Japan during WWII. They also learn about the American military experience, and innovations that changed the style of warfare. Students benefit from a graphic organizer, lecture, group work, discussion, and writing. Ultimately, individuals must write an essay that incorporates primary source information.
High school readers examine George Orwell's essay "Shooting an Elephant" for examples of symbolism, metaphor, connotation, and irony. They analyze how these literary tools convey the writer's main point and contribute to the persuasive effect of the text. The resource is thorough, if a bit cumbersome.
Students consider the role of climate change in the occurrence of vector born diseases such as malaria. In small groups, they research a specific vector to complete an information chart on climate changes in the region where the vector exists, the impact of the change on its habitat and the potential impact on disease transmission.
A lot of learning objectives are included here! Discuss some related vocabulary words before reading President Franklin D. Roosevelt's speech at the United Nations Day ceremony. Several activities accompany the speech including a graphic organizer and comprehension questions.
The Five People You Meet in Heaven is a wonderful book to explore with your high schoolers. Assign the reading of Section 4 at home, and provide your class with this guide. The first 10 questions are simple recall questions, while the last three focus on a deeper understanding of the text. Tie-in the Common Core State Standards by having readers use specific textual evidence to answer the questions.
Volleyball originated in the United States over one hundred years ago as a combination of four different games. Can you guess which ones? Check out this PowerPoint and introduce the game of volleyball to your class. It has great photos and good basic information about the game, the rules, and the skills involved.
Here's a pretty comprehensive lesson on the polka. There is information on the origins of the polka and the history of Oktoberfest. There is even a list of how to count to ten in Polish, Czech, and German. Include or skip whatever you choose in presenting this lesson on the polka. The steps to performing the polka are written out and better yet, there is a video that shows a group of college students performing the dance.
All cultures express similar thoughts, feelings, and ideas. But, often times those things are expressed differently. Learners compare and contrast traditional dances from two cultures. They watch videos of each performance, stop to discuss body language and shape, and then reflect on what each dance is trying to convey. The lesson can use any two cultures but suggests the Hawaiian hula and Cambodian Aspara Dance. Note: The resource says Cambodian Aspara dance, most likely it is supposed to be the Cambodian Apsara dance.
I love any lesson that addresses more than one subject area. You and your class will discuss endangered animals; each child will choose one animal and then create a decorated egg to represent their animal. After the eggs are decorated, the children can present them to the class along with an explanation as to why it is their favorite animal and how it became endangered. Research, holiday fun, environmental awareness, and speaking skills; now that's a great activity!
